Support innovative and inclusive programming!

 Quartet121 is planning bigger and more exciting projects for the 2019-2020 season. In order to make it possible, we need your help! As an artist-run organization, we rely on private donors to support project essentials, such as travel fees and concert space rentals.

This season Quartet121 is planning two programs that we will perform in New York City and Philadelphia. In the fall we will present Haas’s concert-length third string quartet, In iij. Nocht, which is performed entirely in the dark. Our Spring concert will feature a program centered around Nils Vigeland’s work for string quartet and two pianos, Sailing to Byzantium. The upcoming season also includes a string quartet seminar at the Banff Centre and visits to the composition departments at Manhattan School of Music and UPenn to workshop new pieces for string quartet.

Our fundraising goal for the 2019-2020 season is $20,000. Contributions will go toward:

  • Tuition and travel fees for Quartet121 to participate in the Banff Centre’s “Evolution of the String Quartet” workshop, where we will study contemporary string quartet repertoire with the renowned JACK Quartet

  • Travel for quartet members between New York City and Philadelphia

  • Concert venue rentals for the season’s exceptional concerts

  • Video and audio recording costs so that we can share our music with our community


Your donation will help make these goals a reality.  We hope that you become part of our community today by donating any amount.
